According to the Morgan-Quitno rankings, three cities in FL make the top safest cities lists. Coral Springs (#4) and Port St Lucie (#10) in the 100,000-499,999 population group, Coral Springs is #10 and Port St Lucie #25 in the Top Overall list of 371 cities, and Jacksonville is #10 safest in cities with populations over 500,000. The methodology involved measurement in ratio of violent crimes, burglary and auto theft (per capita). City Crime Rankings by Population Group

I was trying to find some info about crime by type.

I was able to find stats showing the basics, like that Orlando has more theft crime than all the others combined, but I wasn't able to see if that was crime against companies or residents. On the page here (http://www.city-data.com/crime/crime...o-Florida.html) they have theft, auto theft, burglaries, and robbery separate.

All total that makes up 90% (a rounding issue makes the pie total to 101 ). Though I think most people focus on that 10% assault. I figure the other 1% is non-theft property damage?

1. Florida is NOT safe. We have 20 foot Alligators that eat kids ! ! !

2. We have Pedifiles everywhere. Deadbeat Ground Zero.

3. The rude folks are mostly from New York or Illegal Immigrants.

Florida is weird animal...

Texas has 20 foot alligators but you hardly ever hear of kids being eaten.

Texas has pedophiles everywhere (EVERY state does)

Texas has PLENTY of people from up North and the Upper Midwest, Half the state of Michigan has moved here and we're at ground zero for illegal immigrants but you hardly ever meet anyone that's "rude"

It MUST be something else ?

Is there a community for a couple looking to rent a home, NOT BUY ONE, to enjoy the sun and snow-free winter while living on a modest salary and be able to not hear their neighbors blasting bass-based noise or beer bottles breaking with profanities shouted?

People who know about Florida and live there and are not completely biased against living there... can you please answer...

Thank you.
If you want a low volume lifestyle with access to some of the best beaches in the country, live outside of Sarasota or right in Venice. Venice is a cute little town. Siesta beach is minutes away from both places.

Port Charlotte has a bleak look to it but it definitely is quiet.

I have been going to TY park since my kids were little. Oldest is 31. Started walking my dog there about five years ago. Never really had a problem. About two years ago I started seeing broken glass everywhere and was also handed a flyer at the front that there were constant break-ins and to watch your belongings. This was about one year ago. I stayed away for awhile and started walking my dog there again in the past 3 months. I saw at least four break ins with police showing up in the last two months. Today, I came off the highway and had my dog with me and decided to stop there for a few mintues to walk him after a long ride. I know there was someone watching because as I neared the front of the park with my dog and my car was really not that far, the guy almost ran me down and sped down the path and I turned around and sure enough he was parked right on top of my car. I started to walk very fast towards my car and he took off but I made sure that I got his license plate. He passed me right by. There was definitely someone that tipped him off. He flew into the park and I know he knew that it was my car that he was going to break into. As I approached my car of course glass everywhere. Just got the damn thing about one week ago. The front is all scratched and a big tear on the inside. I kept telling the police who I thought had tipped this guy off and he kept saying no I doubt it. The van I thought tipped off the crook took off and came back after the police were gone and I was getting ready to leave. Scary. I have to say I did leave my bag because I was walking him real quick and I was really not that far from the car. I normally never never leave my bag in the car but I put it on the floor with stuff over it because I knew I wouldn't be far. Never Never Never do that. I never will do that again. The one time I figured it was okay, it wasn't. Let that be a lesson. These criminals are quick. I don't see any postings anywhere on the internet to be careful and that is not fair. It is happening everywhere of course. It is a crying disgusting shame that we have to live like that. They got all my identity. P.S. Police ran tag. It was a rented car. I am sure they gave false information to the rental agency. Dahhhhh. There was a lady parked right there in her white trailer and she saw them smash my window but she said she didn't really know what was going on. She is there all the time......... What a mess.

Vist some of the very small inner state towns in Florida. Those that are far away from the coast or an interstate.
